United Airlines has partnered with The Private Suite to give the airline’s customers access to a new private terminal at Los Angeles International Airport (LAX) in the US.

Passengers who purchase access to the terminal will be able to use private and personalised check-in and baggage handling services, as well as private screening by the officers of US Transportation Security Administration, and Customs and Border Protection.

United customers going through the new terminal will be provided with the BMW 7-Series sedans to drive them across the airfield directly to their aircraft.

Passengers will enjoy individual suites and restrooms, as well as a full bar and top-tier food service at the United-branded lounge at the new terminal.

“As California’s global airline, our customers expect the best, and United is delivering on that promise.”

United Airlines California president Janet Lamkin said: “We are excited to offer this new experience for our customers who are seeking additional efficiency, comfort, privacy and the ultimate service during their travels.

“The partnership with The Private Suite affords our customers the opportunity to enjoy a one-of-a-kind experience that makes travel through LAX the best in class. As California’s global airline, our customers expect the best, and United is delivering on that promise.”

International travellers will be escorted to private customs and immigration processing. The airline has deployed a private suite logistics team of eight people to each booking.

United stated that access to The Private Suite will be included in certain business-class fares.

The airline’s passengers flying to or from New York/Newark; Hawaii; Aspen, Colorado; London Heathrow; Melbourne and Sydney, Australia; Los Cabos, Mexico; Shanghai; Singapore; and Tokyo Narita can buy and avail this exclusive co-branded lounge at The Private Suite’s terminal on the LAX airfield.

Owned and operated by Gavin de Becker & Associates, The Private Suite at LAX is a separate, reservation-only passenger terminal for VIPs.
